Irrational? Yes, but... I want one.

    I really, really want an AR. I want an M4 with a carry handle, preferably a Colt LE6920.

    I don't need one. Would not be able to use it much as I think it would be too high powered for my backyard range.

    I just want one.

    Nothing irrational about it at all.

    Wants vs. Needs.

    I struggled with the same thoughts, for months. Finally, I decided the purchase could not be rationalized, but that it was ok to buy one, just because I could.

    Two days ago, I came home with an LE6920 from Walmart. My out-the-door price was $1097. I'm helping to keep Americans employed!

    I also wanted an AR. No real need for one.

    They are fun. I am glad I own one, or two if you count the colt .22.

    When you need it, what make you think you could get one?

    Odd question.

    You ask that as if I suggested the OP shouldn't get one. My intent was quite the opposite, actually.

    I was pummeled mercilessly in another thread for this, but I'm still intrigued by the Windham Weaponry MPC. The reviews seem pretty unanimous that they are extremely well made rifles.

    Hmmmm... Seems to me the only solution is to get both a Colt and a WW. That way I'll be happy and no one here can complain about me not getting a Colt. :).

    I was replying to your statement that civilians don't need an AR15, yet.

    When I said YOU, it was in general, not directly at you.

    You really need to lighten up on the defensive attitude.

    If I only bought guns I need I would only have one. What does need have to do with it? Buy the AR if you WANT it and you will be happy ever after.

    Get the Colt and give the wife the Windham. :cool:

    I thought for years I didn't need one. Then I bought one and then 3 more and then the 15-22. I am down to two and the 15-22. They are our go to rifles for animals, dogs, strangers and bumps in the night.

    Very, very versatile platform.

    I wasn't being defensive one bit. Your imagination is causing you to read things into my posts that aren't there.

    Plus, your post was poorly written and difficult to understand.

    Write better, it will help. A better way to make your statement might be "The time may come when we need them, and they won't be available"

    And also, that is a thing of beauty. I've never, EVER said this to a man before, but you have a nice tool there. :cool:

    Just wanting one is all the justification/reason you need to buy one.
